Kim Wolters moved to Pensacola in July of 2013 with her husband. Prior to relocating to the Gulf Coast, Kim had become an avid fan of the barre method. Unable to find an exercise program that provided the same results or challenged her in the same capacity she sought a way to bring barre to Pensacola. With a background in medicine she is a firm believer in the benefits barre has to offer and is eager to teach this technique.
Bethanne Edwards moved to the Pensacola area in 2014 with her husband, and they are both originally from Oklahoma. She currently works for an environmental consulting firm. Bethanne fell in love with ballet at the age of 3 and continued her practice until the age of 16. But since then, she never exercised regularly and decided that she would never find a workout she actually enjoyed. Now that she has found Pensacola Barre, she can’t imagine going back to that inactive lifestyle. PB has helped her build back the long, lean muscles and strong core she used to have and allows her to continually challenge herself just like with ballet. Bethanne is excited to help others discover the many amazing benefits of Barre.
